Download

https://github.com/downloads/rgieseke/textadept-portable/TextadeptPortable.zip

Note that this is only the launcher, you need to download the current version of Textadept from http://foicica.com/textadept/download and unpack and copy it to TextadeptPortable\App\Textadept.

Building the launcher yourself

Run on Linux/Unix (or download the files from the web and unzip Textadept): downloads.sh

Then run on Windows: build.bat

Finally a zip can be created (Linux shell script): pack.sh
